Private Homes chalet description

Bear Trail Inn is a free-standing authentic Austrian-style chalet located on a large, treed hillside lot adjacent Lost Lake Park and trails. The Roote brothers who were pioneers in Whistler started the elaborate valley trail system literally right out back so our chalet feeds directly into the well-maintained biking/skiing/and pedestrian trails.

The chalet has been updated with heated floors, new bathrooms, new appliances and electronics but still maintains it's rustic charm with it's 12 foot knotless cedar clad ceiling and pine and cedar throughout. A new multi-person outdoor hot-tub with a new gazebo over it has been added in 2009 but return guests also enjoy the spacious cedar indoor sauna. 10 thousand dollars worth of new beds for the Olympics which were held in 2010.

Great for skiing and mountain biking it is a 10 minute walk to the Village and both mountains and a 2 minute ride to the bike park and Gondola. Or, if you want to take the 5 minute bus ride the bus stop is a 3 minute walk away - just far enough to warm you up but not tire you out!

Keywords: Great hot-tub outside this authentic Austrian-style mountain chalet - perfect for a short stay or book long term

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About the owner: Pam and Rod Thompson are long time ski instructors, coaches, guides. Rod works full time at the High School and Pam does property management and Pam and Rod both find time to volunteer with the Whistler Mountain Ski Club, the Whistler Skating Club where we, and our kids are members. Marielle (World Skicross Champion & Crystal Globe winner 2012), Broderick (World U21 GS Champion in France 2013) and now National Team Prospect athlete, and Tess figure skates, does ballet, and enjoys recreational skiing all help to run the chalet. If you need a child-minder they are all available should you want a night out on the town. We can recommend the best restaurants and fun activities in and around Whistler.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      Pam grew up chasing her brothers and sisters around on the slopes of Whistler and Rod came out from Saskatchewan to teach skiing in the big mountains - both have travelled extensively but have never left their Whistler home permanently. We now live next door to our guest house 'Bear Trail Inn' so we are never far away if you need any help.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      We love the hot-tub after a day on the slopes or after hiking and absolutely love being able to walk out the back yard onto the Lost Lake Trails. Our Finnish guests love our big indoor cedar sauna which has been refreshed summer 2013. You can really get lost here in nature but the world-class village for all sorts of restaurant enjoyment are just a short walk away too. When the whole chalet is not rented Pam runs it as a B&B or B&D so please ask should you wish to have catered meals for a nominal fee - advance reservations always required. We have done weddings/cocktail parties/small corporate events so if we can be any help to you in planning your Whistler vacation or long-stay please just ask.
